After failing to return to the postseason in season 5, general manager Brenden Nichols decided to make drastic changes with the organization staff. In doing so, he hired a new pitching coach in Rick Kranitz, a new batting coach in Carney Lansford, and lastly, a new scout in Yonder Thomas. He also acquired exceptional outfielder Christian Yelich in a trade that sent Derek Detrich to Miami.
Season 6 is expected to be a more auspicious season for the Astros with a strong chance at contending in the National League.
The Houston Astros and Tampa Bay Rays face off in a three-game set at Minute Maid Park.
